We are excited to be the exclusive seller of Finex Cast Iron cookware in the UK. The company was born out of founder Mike Whitehead’s passion for cast iron cookware and his study of the design of this type of cookware from the 1800’s to the present. Mike fashioned and tested several prototypes before coming up with the re-invented modern design and finish.
Unique features include:
- Ultra-smooth polished cooking surface
- Coiled and ergonomic stainless steel Speed Cool Handle
- Eight-sided design featuring six pouring spouts
Each pan is fashioned by hand and takes approximately 12 hours to complete. They are hand-dipped and tumbled to perfection, pre-seasoned with organic flaxseed oil and thick enough to properly maintain heat while cooking.
The grill pans feature true BBQ-width grill ribs to give outstanding cross-hatch grilling marks whether on the stove, grill or over the coalsAnd last, but not least, Finex offers a lifetime ‘good forever with honest use’ guarantee.
Frequently Asked Questions
Do I need to season my Finex pan? Is it really non-stick?
Your Finex cast iron pan comes pre-seasoned with organic flaxseed oil. Before you use it the first time, give it a quick rinse with warm water and dry it completely. You will want to use a little cooking oil the first few times you use it. Over time, your the pan will continue to develop a natural seasoning, which will boost the stick-resistant surface.
How do I clean my Finex cast iron pan?
Cleaning is easy. Simply rinse with hot water; detergent is not necessary. For stuck-on foods use a stainless steel scrubber or brush. Never leave your pan to soak for long periods of time in water and never put your cast iron in the dishwasher. Iron loves to rust if left wet, so dry thoroughly and do not leave it to air-dry.
After drying and before storing, apply a very thin layer of any vegetable oil and work thoroughly into the pan; wipe off any excess. This will protect the natural seasoning you’ve worked hard to develop.
Is it necessary to re-season a Finex cast iron pan?
Even if the pan does get scorched or scratched, it is good to remember that cast iron is very forgiving. Using a scouring pad, a little quality vegetable oil and a little elbow grease you can return the pan to top condition.
If the pan develops some rust spots, preheat your oven to 200°C. Remove the rust with some steel wool, then wash and dry thoroughly. Next, apply a very thin layer of flaxseed (or linseed) oil to the entire surface of the pan—including the outside. Once coated wipe off the excess oil and bake the pan in the oven for one hour.
